Home Remedies for Vaginal Yeast Infections | Essential Oils for Yeast Infection

Yeasts are living in the vaginal area in the woman but most of the time they are very limited to small quantities that are not harmful to the woman. However, they may grow at any time causing severe itching, burning, and red areas.
That leads most women, specially in eastern countries, to go for home remedies for yeast infections instead of visiting the doctors to avoid any kind of embarrassment to themselves. These yeast infections make women really uncomfortable during their day.Sometimes the yeast infections symptoms are not the aforementioned, but more; In several reported cases there might be a thick and white substance discharged from their vagina.

Usage of Oils

Usage of oils as a home remedy for yeast infection is not limited to tea tree oils only, but coconut oil proved a great positive effect between the home remedies for yeast infection. Coconut oil is a very effective antifungal that can eliminate the fungi responsible for the infection. 

You can use it in several ways, most effective ones are:
Applying the coconut oil directly on the affected area 2-3 times a day.
Mixing it with cinnamon oil and directly apply it on the affected area to minimize the growth possibility of the infection.

Oil of Oregano

Wild Oregano being one of the most powerful natural anti fungals, is an excellent choice of  to start your Candida treatment. Oregano oil is not just an anti fungal, but also has antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. One study has even shown it to have cancer-preventative properties too.

The oil of oregano that’s used to treat yeast infections isn’t the same type that you’ll find in a grocery store’s spice section. Look for oil of oregano made from wild oregano, or Origanum vulgare. It contains thymol and carvacrol, which are powerful antifungals. In contrast, common oregano, or Origanum marjoram, is what you usually find in your grocery store’s spice section.

If you buy oregano oil in a bottle, start by drinking 3 drops in water twice daily. You can gradually increase this up to 6 drops twice a day. It’s best to drink one glass of water per 3 drops to prevent any burning in your mouth.

Alternatively, you can buy oregano oil in a gel form. This is just as potent, and you can make it part of your daily vitamin and supplement routine. A good example is the softgels from Gaia Herbs, each of which contains 230mg oregano oil. You can start with one softgel, taken daily after a meal, then work up to two soft gels a day. For long term, oregano can also be used to prevent a recurrence of your Candida overgrowth.

Boric Acid

Boric acid is a white, crystalline chemical substance that has anti fungal and antiviral properties. It is used in various prescription pharmaceutical products and is also available without a prescription. Some experts now recommend vaginal boric acid capsules as a treatment option for vaginal yeast infections, particularly infections that can't be cured by anti fungal yeast infection medicines.

You can make your own boric acid suppositories. Just fill “00 size” gelatin capsules with boric acid. To treat a yeast infection, insert one capsule deeply into your vagina at bedtime every day for a week.

Using Cotton Underwear

You should start thinking of using cotton underwear products as one of the home remedies for yeast infection, they provide a warm covering for the vagina as it keeps warmness and prevents any kind of air flow. It's also suggested when using skinny clothes since they are very tight and might cause an infection as well.



Cranberries are great for home remedies for yeast infections, it's an antibacterial and antifungal at the same time. It's frequently used to fight bacterias and fungi, including those who are responsible for yeast infections. By drinking pure cranberry juice three times a day to make it reach the maximum efficiency. If you can't find pure cranberry juice in any surrounding markets or shops, you can go for cranberry tablets which are found in health stores frequently.

The risk of self-treatment is that your symptoms may be caused by a type of vaginal infection other than a yeast infection, such as bacterial vaginosis or a sexually transmitted infection (STI). If you have pelvic pain or fever, get an evaluation by a doctor. Specially in case of pregnancy, it is recommended to get the vaginal symptoms evaluated. Some vaginal infections, such as bacterial vaginosis, gonorrhea, or chlamydia, may increase your risk of complications during pregnancy.
